Smino has unveiled “24-8,” a new song from his upcoming album Luv 4 Rent. Take a listen below.

“I’m fucking good at this shit, dawg,” Smino says to open his latest single, produced by Phoelix. “For real for real.” “24-8” proves him right; an eerie, psychedelic melody propels the artist’s “Sometimes I wanna go slow” hook, but in the verses, Smino picks up the speed. In the song’s music video, he chills by the fire and picks out the perfect Digiorno at the convenience store.

Smino shared an open letter alongside “24-8,” detailing his personal journey in recent years and thanking fans for their support. “I Spent Alotta time becoming a better fren to myself…” he wrote. “I spent Alotta time searching for time I already had… I spent Alotta time tryna make this shit perfect only to realize the only perfect things come from God and just being myself is perfect bc I come from God Himself…”

“Preciate err body who been rocking wimme thru the years…” Smino added. “Thru the label change…its some real coo people looking after the music now and I’m excited to show y’all how much I dun grown…” Read his full statement below.


Smino has yet to share a release date for Luv 4 Rent. Last year, he dropped the single “I Deserve.”
